Eighteen-year-old NLE Choppa is potentially in some big trouble. The Memphis native is facing charges of burglary, possession of a firearm without a permit, and possession of Xanax and marijuana. Choppa went on social media to tell his side of the story.
“To begin when you start changing lives around you and began to stand for something deep in your purpose you become a target to a certain group of people and also the devil. During this arrest I was setup, substances were planted on me that I don’t consume/use/own, my name was lied upon, and I was even mistreated in the process. Every media outlet, news channel, and etc covered this story to paint a picture on a new surface I’ve been working so hard to create. The case will be beat and I will walk a free man, remember it’s innocent until proven guilty not guilty until proven innocent…”
